In this workshop, vocalists will build their Yiddish repertoire with rarely performed gems from collections of Yiddish folk songs. Singers will start by digging into collections and anthologies culled from field recordings and master performers of the past (Beregovsky, Mlotek, Rubin, Stonehill). We will lead the singers through song selection, engage in a group close reading of the lyrics, support learning of the melody, arrangement and performance approach to the song. The 4-day workshop will culminate in a performance. Yiddish vocalist Inna Barmash will be joined by Klez Dispensers Musical Director (and former bandmate) Adrian Banner and other special guests.
